PUBLIC, CANDIDATES, REPORTERS WELCOME AT GOVERNMENT CENTER ON ELECTION NIGHT

The Doña Ana County Government Center Commission Chambers will be open to reporters, candidates and the general public on the evening of the Tuesday, Nov. 7, General Elections.

While ballots are being processed and results posted, the Bureau of Elections will be visible from the hallway, but closed to reporters, candidates and the general public. Only county staff and officially designated campaign observers will be allowed into the ballot-processing area.

In addition to regularly posting local election result updates on the county’s website (www.donaanacounty.org) throughout the evening, Doña Ana County also will display updates in the Commission Chambers as they are posted from the Bureau of Elections.

Wireless Internet access will be provided inside the Commission Chambers for the evening, allowing those with laptop computers to monitor other election websites throughout the state and nation as the evening progresses. The password for wireless users will be posted in the Commission Chambers for the evening, then changed the following morning to prevent unauthorized access to the county’s network.
